Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

South Wales Sport Climbs

South Wales Sport Climbs covers the area to the south of the Brecon Beacons, spanning the land and sea cliffs from the River Wye on the Welsh border to Pembrokeshire in the west. The area is home to a wealth of sport climbing on a multitude of venues ranging from small inland quarries to extensive limestone sea cliffs.

Nice bit of Winter sport. Some seepage at Crag/Slab on starts of Drilling Fields through to I Bolt, however entirely avoidable. Slabs lose sun at about 2.30/3 at this time of year. East retained sun till late but starts were soggy due to tidal swell.

Really enjoyed Watch House East - Steep climbing on good holds, well bolted, sunny aspect...

The bolt has been replaced. Enjoy.

The hanger has been removed because there is a dangerous bolt higher on the route. A piece of rock has come off and the bolt is partly exposed and too close to an edge. It will be moved soon and the hangers replaced. Danny

the hanger on the third bolt of Anonymous Bosch, i'll take a hanger and a spare nut next time I go and check the bolt, unless somebody does it before me !!

Pair of nesting choughs at cave at left hand side of crag so probably best to stay away for the coming weeks if possible...

The loose rock has now been removed and new bolts placed at the start of JTC and PA. Both now have harder but better starts and the grades remain the same.

My first time visiting today. We found a clean looking face of rock at the bottom of the crag, right of 'jump to conclusions' and a bolt in some rock on the floor. JTC still felt F7a, not sure about the routes to the right though!

Routes now up to date.
